A new flagstone patio protects guests from the sun while relaxing or dining. A large pergola is bordered by a gas fire pit for warmth and ambient lighting. Pendant lights hang from the pergola for additional light after sunset.
This covered flagstone patio features a flatscreen television, wifi, and access to the kitchen. Sliding barn door-style panels can conceal the tv when it is not in use. A coordinating door closes off the kitchen entry.
A large passthrough between the kitchen and covered patio makes serving guests convenient. Linear drainage leads to the adjacent hillside to keep the pool deck dry.
This deluxe professional grill provides amble power to cook for a large group. It includes a side burner, four burners, and storage.
Built from western red cedar, this outdoor kitchen and pergola features V-groove siding set in a horizontal pattern. A folding window is set into the building's front for easy access.
It's hard to appreciate from this beautiful nighttime photo how difficult it was to reach this site for construction. On the far side of a right-away and inaccessible by a backhoe or cement truck, the builders had to cart materials using a wheelbarrow. Additionally, the original footings were inadequate to support the new structure. MARK IV Builders dug 8 feet deep to give the new footings good bearing.
The stainless steel cabinets and appliances in this outdoor kitchen are customized for outdoor use. Because it is an outdoor kitchen, all plumbing is designed to be drained and winterized.
This back yard is now the ideal outdoor entertaining spot. Guests can enjoy the sun on the deck, duck under partial shade from the pergola, or enjoy more shade under the covered patio. Wifi, television, and a fully functional kitchen are an entertainer's dream!
